  • 630 roid free homers. Griffey can hold his head high. When he entered his thirties and went on a natural decline people were wondering what was wrong with him. The truth was that everyone was on the juice and he wasn't. Now Griffey is in the MLB Hall of Fame and people like Mark Macguire and Barry Bonds have gone into hiding.

  • My dad bought me a Griffey JR glove when I was 12. That was my fist time playing on a team. I'm 38 now and I still have the glove. I have played on several teams and with my kids. I think that's the only Item I've kept up with from my childhood. Griffey was one of the best. Were both lefties and I wanted to play out field because of him.

  • When people talk about the greatest of all time, his name gets forgotten. You hear, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Barry Bones. In my opinion he deserves to be at least mentioned as one of the greatest ever! I don’t really care for baseball but between Griffey, Bonds, Randy Johnson, Pedro, Ozzie Smith, and Cal Ripken. I became a fan.
